A Boy I Once Knew: What a Teacher Learned from her Student

Elizabeth Stone

A Boy I Once Knew: What a Teacher Learned from her Student by Elizabeth StoneOne morning, a box was delivered to Elizabeth Stone's door. It held ten years of personal diaries and a letter that began "Dear Elizabeth, You must be wondering why I left you my diaries in my will. After all, we have not seen each other in over twenty years . . ."

What followed was a remarkable year in Elizabeth's life as she read Vincent's diaries and began to learn about the high school student she had taught twenty-five years before. A Boy I Once Knew is the story of the man that Vincent had become-and the efforts of his teacher to make some sense of his life.

With his diaries, Vincent becomes...

A Metaphoric Mind: Selected Writings of Joseph Couture

Ruth Couture

A Metaphoric Mind: Selected Writings of Joseph Couture by Ruth CoutureDr. Joseph Couture (1930-2007), known affectionately as "Dr. Joe," stood at the centre of some of the greatest political, social, and intellectual struggles of Aboriginal peoples in contemporary Canada.

A School in South Uist: Reminiscences of a Hebridean Schoolmaster, 1890-1913

F. G. Rea & John Lorne Campbell

A School in South Uist: Reminiscences of a Hebridean Schoolmaster, 1890-1913 by F. G. Rea & John Lorne CampbellThese are the memories of Frederick Rea, an English teacher who became headmaster of Garrynamonie School in South Uist in the 1890s. At that time, the Hebrides were as remote and forbidding to mainlanders as the Antarctic is to us today, and South Uist was one of the poorer districts. Roads were often no more than rough tracks across the mountain moorland or over the storm-swept machair. His Gaelic-speaking pupils were often frozen and starving, and fever epidemics were frequent. Rea's memoirs show how he strove to meet these difficulties. His pupils remember him as a sincere, conscientious...

Alice Herz-Sommer was born in Prague in 1903. A talented pianist from a very early age, she became famous throughout Europe; but, as the Nazis rose to power, her world crumbled. In 1942, her mother was deported to the Theresienstadt concentration camp and vanished. In 1943, Alice, her husband and their six-year-old son were sent there, too.

Dr. David C. Johnson

An Unexpected Finish Line Leaves a Unique Legacy: One Persons Short Journey Impacts the Journey of Many by Dr. David C. Johnson"Engineering, at it's core, seeks to leverage a deeper understanding of God's physical creation for some useful purpose". Penned by Dr. Kenneth Johnson, those words reflect the unwavering commitment of a Renaissance man whose life was committed to serving Christ and bringing hope to those in need. Dr. Kenneth Johnson left significantly more than a tragedy behind him when he left this world in November 2013 at the age of 43. In the words of Dr. John C. Bowling, President of Olivet Nazarene University (O.N.U.)," Ken was deeply faithdriven and a tremendous professor who inspired greatness from...

Antonio Caso, Philosopher of Mexico: Philosopher of Mexico

John H. Haddox

Antonio Caso, Philosopher of Mexico: Philosopher of Mexico by John H. HaddoxFew men have had as much cultural and educational influence on their own countries as the philosopher and educator Antonio Caso (1883-1946).

In his youth, after the revolt against Díaz, he was a member of the Ateneo de la Juventud, a group that sought to bring Mexico, spiritually and economically, back to the Mexicans. Caso realized that this effort involved the forming of a national consciousness among his people, whom he saw divided by their private and public interests....

Educational politics (school board), Master's studies (Goodwill Games), athletic accomplishments with emphasis on running, early childhood development, raising a family, the intricacies of running for public office (State House) and a healthy dose of family ancestry are all mixed into the teacher context of the story.
